  The gold-domed City Hall in the Civic Center.
by Jerelis

Van Ness Avenue, the widest street in the City, is home to San Francisco's city government.

The gold-domed City Hall was modeled after St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Across the street is the Performing Arts Center comprised of the newly renovated War Memorial Opera House, the Veterans Building, Herbst Theater and Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall.
